1. Three Harvest Kings
The three kings of the harvest are different aspects of the God that we see during the sabbats of Lammas, Mabon, and Samhain. Just as the essence of the Goddess is to bring forth life from her womb and rule over springtime, it is the nature of the God to offer himself in the autumn as the Harvest.
2. Full Harvest Moon of September
The September full moon is the Harvest Moon. This is also the month of the second harvest (root crops) and Mabon sabbat / autumn equinox. This is an extremely busy month for spellwork.
3. Kitchen Witch Ritual for Sacred Space
Before launching projects in the kitchen, a kitchen witch might want to cleanse and bless her sacred space. She can do any work she wants within a circle of protection even if she is not raising energy. Here is an original ritual written by me that is short and streamlined.
4. How to Decorate a Lammas Altar
The Lammas altar celebrates the first harvest of wheat. It is still high summer on August 1, but you have reached the gateway to autumn. Lammas is the midpoint between midsummer and fall equinox. You are standing on the threshold between the growing and the great reaping.
5. Starting Your Book of Mirrors
Your Book of Mirrors is your personal journal where you clarify your feelings about your spiritual path as you learn more about Wicca or paganism. Let me give you writing prompts to use in your Book of Mirrors.
6. God Herbs Versus Goddess Herbs
Herbs are a strong correspondence to use in rituals and spells. But sometimes you want to work with the masculine energies of the God or the feminine energies of the Goddess. Which herbs are appropriate? Here is a rule of thumb that has worked for me.
7. How to Use the Power of Color in Witchcraft
Spell-enhancers such as color are called correspondences because their symbolism corresponds with the purposes of various spells. When you peruse this list of commonly accepted meanings for colors, remember to consult your own intuition above all when choosing a color.
8. How to Make a Wiccan Sacrifice
How can we modern Wiccans and pagans practice sacrifice while connecting with our gods and our ancestors? Through creating and offering the symbolic cakes and ale.
9. Ideas For Your Lammas Party
The sabbat of Lammas, which occurs on August 1, is the First Harvest of wheat, barley, and maize. Lammas sabbat feels like a county fair replete with feasting and good-natured competition. It can be a giddy event infused with the rowdy, high-spirited energy of the young trickster sun-god Lugh.
10. Wiccan Words A to C
When you're a pagan or Wiccan, it is good to know the jargon. Here is a list of pagan and Wiccan terms and their meanings, which I will add to over time.
